Here are some simple things you can do at home to help guide your child to improving their “YES I CAN” Attitude.

Avoid demonstrating judgmental behavior as this will be counter productive. Take the time to Understand how they feel so you can give positive feed back and remind them that our know they are capable of doing great things. Supporting them so they having someone to lean on will help them to try new things if they know they have you as support system.

Every kid gravitates towards a particular activity that he or she is interested in or comfortable with. Find out what your kid enjoys and encourage them towards it.

3 Talk with them:
A little pre-framing maybe is all that it takes. Make sure your child understands that you love them and it is ok to be shy and if they fail at something. We want our children to do their best.

4 Encourage them to try:
One of the best ways to help your kid open up and speak their mind. Let them know they are important and help them to understand or to encourage them to try new things or interact with new friends.

5 Don’t Label Them:
Probably the worst mistake while dealing with your child is to label him in any manner. Public or private ridicule will always make thing worse. Never be negative towards the child in public settings. Labeling your kid as ‘shy’ will make them lose confidence in themselves.
